In an effort to shine a bright light amidst the uncertainty and gloom brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the tough economic times, MANCOSA, a private higher education institution, will host a motivational virtual webinar on World Positivity Day, 13 September at 12 noon.
World Positivity Day, officially established in 2003 by an American entrepreneur, commemorates the many rewards that can be found in thinking positively.
The guest speaker will be Bruce Whitefield, a multi-platform award-winning financial journalist whose presentation is titled “The Upside of Down – How Chaos and Uncertainty Breed Opportunity in South Africa”.
MANCOSA opens the live virtual webinar to students and the public. However, if you are not a MANCOSA student, please enter ‘external’ in the student number field.

Research is starting to reveal that positive thinking is much more than simply being happy or being optimistic. Positive thoughts can in fact create real value in life and help people acquire skills that last far longer than a smile.
Studies have also shown that the risk of heart disease can be lowered through positive thinking and reduce stress. Positive thinking is also thought to increase a person’s life span and lower depression.
Finding ways to build happiness and positive emotions into life - whether through meditation, writing, playing, enjoying a basketball game or anything else — provides more value in other areas of life.
Lutfiya Adam, Director in Human Resources and Employability at MANCOSA said: “We strive to inspire positivity in our students and even in ourselves.”
“The past two years have been difficult for all around the world, and what better way to celebrate positive feelings and a positive mindset with Bruce Whitfield.”
“Being healthier by bringing in more positive vibrations through our physical, mental and emotional self will help us achieve having a better and more successful life,” she stated.
